Golden Christmas Give-Away

Notes From The Heart is formally having our first give-away!!! As you probably know, Vicky Vaughan usually writes every post. Notes From The Heart truly is a reflection of who she is. I love reading her writing. I love listening to her share her heart. And I love listening to her sing.

But for this one post, I've "hijacked" Notes From The Heart. I wanted to take a moment and share my heart. And then - I'll get to the Golden Christmas Give-Away details!

We are all given gifts from the Lord. Each of our giftings are unique, beloved and beautiful. Whoever you are - God blessed you for His Kingdom. He says in His Word that you were beautifully and wonderfully created! What a blessing this very fact is. A startling wonder to think He created, appointed and has molded each of us - in His image for His glory!

It is with delight I have been discovering this Truth in my own walk. And it is with awe that I see His master craftsmanship in my beloved sister in Christ, Vicky. I have been blessed to know her and work with her in her ministry, her music and all the ways God has allowed over the last several years. Her testimony is powerful and it faithfully reflects God's ability to heal and change. Her music is timeless, poignant and beautiful. Her life is in Worship to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I am honored to call her friend. I am blessed to call her sister - Hand chosen by God! Thus - thank you for stopping by Notes From The Heart. I pray you will stay and read more from Vicky's heart.

=========================

Now to the give-away: Notes From The Heart and VickyVMusic are giving away a Golden Christmas Gift Set. Vicky's newest CD "Golden Christmas" is in the set. This CD includes Vicky's newest songs along with favorites like Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, Angels We Have Heard on High, and The Christmas Song. Also included is a beautiful custom designed VV Sachet Angel. Vicky's talents are vast - and to raise money for her ministry, FIJC, she also designs Sachets. These fragrant beauties make wonderful presents and are designed to delight the eyes and warm the heart. Tulle, faux jewels, flowers, ribbons, wings and halos - all come together to make your little angel so very special. (*The angel in our photograph is an example of what VV Sachet Angels look like. Each one is unique and the one Vicky creates will be designed specifically for our winner!*).

    IT HAS BEEN A HARD YEAR FOR ME AS MY DAUGHTER BATTLED CANCER AS A TRUE SOLDIER NEVER GIVING UP ON GOD AND AT 1012PM ON OCT 23, 2009 SHE GRADUATED TO HEAVEN TO THE ARMS OF JESUS. I MISS HER VERY MUCH..IT IS LIKE HALF OF ME IS GONE BUT I LOVE THE LORD MORE THAN I EVER HAVE.
    MUSIC....CHRISTIAN MUSIC IS WHAT HAS SUSTAINED US WHEN WE WERE NUMB.
    YOUR ANGEL SACHETS ARE ADORABLE. SO VERY PRECIOUS AND I KNOW THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU AS THERE IS NOTHING MORE PRECIOUS THAN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THOSE WHO BRING THE GOOD NEWS.

    We bought our dear 95 year old mother a golden family tree with all our names and birthdays with gem stones on hanging charms this Christmas. This is a golden Christmas even though many of us have passed away.

  14. It is 11:47pm - less than 15 minutes left in the give-away!! Thank you all so much for entering and following Vicky. I pray that you have been as blessed as she has been. She has watched and prayed over each person that visited Notes From The Heart - whether they signed up for the give-away or not. She will be doing the drawing tomorrow. Praying that you are blessed not only by this opportunity but by what God has in store for your life during this Golden Christmas celebration - remembering and honoring what the Father did by sending His son to be born in a manger over 2000 years ago!! God bless each of you. Vicky will post tomorrow about the winner and whatever else the Lord puts on her heart. Thank you for taking a moment to follow Notes From The Heart!

    - Suzanne
